  1. Wow, Over 100 Downloads already!

  2. Hi…firstly THANKS for a great slider.

    I have followed the instructions on how to set it up and yet it displays as an empty slider on the far left side of my homepage (which is centered).
    I’ve changed the size of the images in the vSlider editing page but I still have an empty slider.

    How do I center it?
    How do I get the images to show?

  3. Great plugin.

  4. ..great going Mr. Vibe

  5. Hello Stefan,
    I have been using your older vSlider 2.0 for awhile now and am in the process of upgrading to a more current version of WordPress. I’ve downloaded your most recent version of vSlider and I don’t seem to see a “fade” option for the animation mode. Is there one or will there be one in the next version? This gave me the effect that I wanted.

    • Yup, fade option is currently not in vSlider 3.1. But due to its popularity we’ll include in the next versions for sure.

  6. I installed the 3.1 and now when I go to add a custom image, the +/- does not work. it won’t drop down so I can add the images and text. Have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. probably have to revert back to 3.0 until fixed??

    • Hi Jim,

      Thank you for your valuable input. We did not face any such issue during our testing however, we are working on this. Will update you as soon as it gets resolved.


      • yea, I am using a mac – not sure if that makes a difference. the previous build, I am using on a site right now that I’m about to make live. I really wanted to use the new one to hold a bunch more slides. Also, I’d really like to see a smooth transition with the images.

        thanks for an AWESOME plugin. we designers really appreciate your hard work.


  7. Update: We have crossed the 500 Download Mark for vSlider 3.1.
    In order to keep the plugin updated and running, I request our members to report encountered bugs and we will actively provide you support in the forums.

  8. I have a crazy(?) question. I am currently using this slider in a widget attached to my front page (top feature) and it’s great, I love it, custom links, it’s awesome. For reference lets say its 900pix wide and 180pix tall.


    Let’s say I also want to have another slider on a page where I only have 580pix width to work with. How can I get another slider on this page at different settings from the above one (900pix wide)?


    • Current version vSlider 3.1, supports only a single slide show. However, the next version to be released vSlider 4.0, supports multiple sliders and they can be on the same page as well.
      In case you are interested in getting a copy of vSlider 4.0 before it is released you can sign up as beta tester here:

      • Just about to try this plugin for the first time, but I’ll need to create a few different sliders for different product pages. Do you mean that with the current version, I can only create one slider for use on my entire website? Or can I create different ones for different pages? Thanks!

    • Good question and I’d be interested in knowing this one, too. Perhaps, in the next build we’ll be able to create separate sliders that will have short codes generated for us to place within the them PHP files.

      thanks for this plugin!!

  9. Version 4.0 requires all new formatting, data entry, etc to implement the same look/feel I was happy with with version 3.1.

    Where can I download 3.1 to replace 4.0?

  10. iHi m used new vslider4.0 version its working finely but i want move button on left side its may be top:15px its can moved its hide on behond the slides… m getting so much problem

  11. Where do i need to put that code in the index.php or header.php?

  12. Depends upon where you want your vSlider to be placed. If you want it to be on home page only.
    you can use index.php in case that does not work use some conditional tag in header like.
    if(is_home()){ vslider(); }
